‘Queen Bee’ Lil’ Kim says she is not playing Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride in interview

Lil' Kim says she won't perform at Atlanta's Black Gay Pride

An interview with Lil Kim on Kontrol Magazine’s website says the Queen Bee won’t be playing Atlant’s Black Gay Pride this weekend, but the promoter of the event believes the singer is trying to get more money for her appearance or possibly doesn't want to be the "opening act" for red-hot Nicki Minaj.

A podcast of the interview posted today quotes Lil Kim as saying that the promoters of the event were duped by a booking agent. She is part of Wassup N ATL’s lineup of entertainers for the weekend and is slated to play at midnight on Saturday at Vita in Buckhead.

In the interview, Lil Kim says a “psycho lunatic” has been representing himself as her booking agent and conned the promoters out of $15,000. She also said there was no way she could show up to perform now.
